What should you do after an acupuncture session?


After a session there are many things a patient can do for a healthy and speedy recovery time.

Our recommendations:

  • Eat a small meal before.
  • If you are doing physical therapy or chiropractic, on a different day is preferable to schedule your appointment.
  • It is not recommended to go to the gym afterward.
  • Relaxation is best after your acupuncture treatment. If you must go or go back to work it is fine, just no physical activities.
  • Do not skip meals (3 meals a day is ideal).


It is very important to hydrate. Water is essential for the proper circulation of nutrients in the body. Water serves at the body’s transportation system and when we are dehydrated things just can’t get around as well.
